I'm excited to become involved in the Typesafe mission. In many ways Typesafe feels like an early SpringSource given its culture, focused people and established open-source projects.
I'll be based just south of Sydney (where I live) and work alongside my new colleague James Roper.
You'll be hearing more from me about why Play should be top of mind when considering the RESTful JSON based web service use case. Watch out Node, here we come!
